Just got a Verizon MiFi2200 yesterday.

The unit has a factory default name (SSID) and password.
How do I change this?

I have read the book that came with the device; I’ve read online using Google searches people talking about doing this but no one says how.

Thank you for your help.

While connected to the mifi via wireless or ethernet, go to your brower's address and type in 192.168.0.1. This will bring you to the cradlepoint admin page. The default password is the last of six of the mac address unless you have changed it.

Under the basic tab, go to wireless and it is there that you can change the SSID and key.

Good luck.

Thank you for your fast reply.

In a new tab of my internet explorer address bar I paste 192.168.0.1. and hit enter.

The address changes to

Code:
http://192.168.0.1./
and in the box below I see:

Oops! This link appears to be broken.


Can you please tell me what I am doing wrong?

You're doing it correctly. I think it is just down at the moment. Mine is also inaccessible. Try again a little later.

Don't use a period at the end:

Code:
http://192.168.0.1/


or if you are connected through your mifi now:

http://192.168.0.1/

Thank you.

I got it!

Without the period it worked.

I have changed the login "admin" password, the SSID name and the WiFi password to something that is more memorable to me plus now that I know how to do it I can re-change the WiFi password every now and again like I change all my passwords.

Again, thank you!

I have a new question about knowing the battery charge level but I’ll start a new thread since it’s a new topic.

I want to protect my wifi by adding a password and changing the SSID name, but a recent Windows service pack has screwed up my computer so that I can't open up the D-Link program that manges my router. Is there some other way I can do this without going through D-Link?How do I change my Wifi SSID name and add a password?

You mention a D-Link program, but we were discussing the MiFi - was that a mistake? Or are you looking for help with a D-Link router? Or are you using a D-Link in conjunction with the MiFi somehow...?

The first thing that bothers me is that the FIRST reply to the original poster is WRONG!

Please, *READ* the question! The person asked about ** MiFi ** admin settings; but the first person to reply gave info about * Cradlepoint * - which has absolutely nothing to do with what the original poster asked!

MiFi - admin link: http://192.168.1.1

So, no, you should not be pasting 192.168.0.1, it should be 192.168.1.1

Also, fyi, when you paste 192.168.1.1 in the browser, it is NOT "changing" the address, it is simply putting "http://" in front of it.
It is the same address.

In addition, please always let people know what the "default admin" username and password are - that is why a lot of people land on these pages from search engines.

Other than that, there is a lot of good info here; and, either way, you folks are helping a LOT of people! Keep up the outstanding work!

I typed it in to my address bar and a page appears that says"UNAUTHORIZED you are not authorized to view the requested page"
